Minutes ago in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade (commandos) of the Republican Guard – in close coordination with the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra, Al-Mughawayr Al-Bahar (Syrian Marines), and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – continued their rapid advance inside Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains), capturing another important village after fierce battle this morning.
The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies imposed full control over the village of ‘Ayn Al-Quntara after a violent firefight with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.
According to a military source that is embedded with the 103rd Brigade, the Syrian Armed Forces advanced to ‘Ayn Al-Quntara after pushing north from the recently captured village of Kinsibba in the Kurdish Mountains; this aforementioned rebel stronghold is the 3rd highest point in the Latakia Governorate.
In addition to the capture of ‘Ayn Al-Quntara, the Syrian Armed Forces are also attacking the remaining rebel positions along the Aleppo-Latakia (M-4 Highway) that leads to the imperative city of Jisr Al-Shughour.
The Syrian Armed Forces are currently sweeping the hilltops surrounding Kinsibba in order to clear the entire area of the Islamist rebels that once occupied this beautiful Antiochian Orthodox village in Latakia’s northeastern countryside.
